Nordic Fintech Snippets – July-August
We decided to skip publishing the July Fintech Snippets separately and combine it with August, because we didn’t expect that much news from the holiday season. We were wrong!
A vast amount of activities have happened in the field recently, starting from new Danish fintech unicorns Pleo and Lunar, to significant M&A actions by Finnish Fellow Finance and EVLI Bank, and Swedish Svea Ekonomi and P.F.C. to create new Nordic challenger banks.
You can read all the recent news from these snippets. Also, remember to have a look at our event calendar at the bottom.
This is Nordic Fintech Snippets, the combined effort of all the Nordic Fintech Hubs, sharing the most important and latest news in fintech and digital finance from each country.
